Personal Flotation Devices Labeling and Standards
Document Number: 2014-22373
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is issuing this final rule to remove references to type codes in its regulations on the carriage and labeling of Coast Guard-approved personal flotation devices (PFDs). Removing these type codes from our regulations will facilitate future incorporation by reference of new industry consensus standards for PFD labeling that more effectively convey safety information, and is a step toward harmonization of our regulations with PFD requirements in Canada and in other countries.
